But seriously, what's the real Smoot have to say to the media anyway? He got bumped out of the depth chart last week by Tryon ffs. If you're getting bumped out by a player with 1 year of experience and almost zero playing time, you need to be worrying more about your job security and less about the media.
yeah but Smoot has always talked...hence SmootSmack

Plus with him getting less playing time (and probably realizing it's his last season with the team) why not just talk away?

And what do you mean "the real Smoot" you calling me fake?

I'm guessing it's only what these people believe will happen. I can't see there being a lot of insider knowledge right now, but who knows?

By the way, Smoot has stopped talking to the media as well
I think judging by how he's handled most of his press conferences recently that this is the most likely scenario. You could tell it was a chore for him.

Zorn said: "Blache really needed a break".

Then why the hell doesn't he retire?

Anyone else think all of the insiders have started to turn on each other?

Re: Jerry Gray takes over Media Duties from Blache

I think it's absurd that anyone is required to talk to the press. What a waste of time talking to a bunch of simple-minded reporters. If it were up to me, reporters wouldn't be allowed on the property.

Blache is probably just tired of talking to idiots. I sympathise completely.

Re: Jerry Gray takes over Media Duties from Blache

I thought Doc Walker's explanation fit best -- when Blache said earlier in the week "throw me under the bus", Zorn may have come to him and said, 'don't do that, I'm the coach, I take the blame here, not you' -- Blache may have agreed, and then said 'I'm not speaking to the media, period.'

Re: Jerry Gray takes over Media Duties from Blache

Personally I think speaking to the media should be an option...except to the head coach. Like TO not wanting to speak to media for example...good for him, he knows his mouth has cause him trouble in the past so he should just shut up. Big Al is not talking to the media either, so let him be.

I don't agree that the Snyder that bought the team is the same Snyder that currently is trying to figure out what his appropriate role is. I don't agree that change for change sake is a good thing. And finally, I don't see how calling for something that won't happen in my lifetime (and I have a bit of time left Lord willing) is in any way the thought of a sensible/rational person.
If Snyder needs to find out what his roll is, simply look around the league at successful organizations (Giants, Pats, Steelers) and see how their owners do things. See they let "football" people run things, making the big decisions. Now Im not saying that always work but dont tell me with the money he is willing to pay people, he could not pull someone from another organization, fire Vinny or demote him to a scout, and say "Ive tryed my way for 10 years and it doesnt work, please fix this and I will stay hands off with my enormous open check book." Until then we will be grouped with the other owners like Jerry Jones and Al Davis. I guess Im just sick of these crazy ass moves, getting a bingo caller on offense without consulting the head coach and then having your D coordinator saying im not talking to the media anymore....this is not normal operations for a football team...if Blanche (who I support and thinks he does the best job on a weak coaching staff) cant take talking to the media cause its just too much, just retire if you dont want to be here. Skins are a circus...the Snyder era has hit a bottom, next stop is Raiders-land of knocking out assistant coaches and the owner calling the sidelines inserting D and O packages during the game. Oh and CRedskinsRule not calling you an idiot, just frustrated. And your post quote about building the house rules and completely relates to this topic of Snyder running things, maybe he should read it.
